Customize these bunnies by using different ribbons, yarn or twine as bows around the neck or ears. I added tulle to make a bow on one of my bunnies.

The ears can also be customized, using either pinking shears to add a zig zag look, or trimming the fleece to be pointed.

Save money on fleece by buying a large fleece blanket at Walmart or a thrift store. It’s just one of our tips for where to find fabric for cheap.

I show how to make these stuffed bunnies from start to finish in my YouTube video found below the instructions.

How to Make a Fleece Bunny


  • Polar Fleece (you will need one 6 X 8″ piece for each bunny)
  • Thread
  • Rubber band
  • Ribbon, yarn or twine
  • Polyfill, cotton stuffing or fleece scraps
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Pinking Shears (optional)


Step 1

Cut a piece of fleece that is 6 inches wide by 8 inches tall.

Fold in half with the long side folded. Place right sides together.

Step 2

Sew a straight stitch up the long side that is not folded and across the short side. Use a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

To make the turn at the corner, be sure that the needle is inserted in the fabric. Then lift up the presser foot and turn your fabric 90 degrees to start sewing down the other side.

Step 3

Turn the tube inside out, pushing out the corners with a turning tool or your fingers for a crisp edge.

Step 4

Add Polyfill stuffing, cotton or other fill material to make the bunny as soft or as firm as you would like. I added stuffing for about 4 inches, however you can add more of less depending on how long you want the ears to be.

Wrap a rubber band around the fabric just above the stuffing, wrapping several time to secure the fabric together and pull it together tightly.

Alternatively you could use ribbon, yarn or twine to tie a knot around the fabric.

Step 5

Now create the bunny head by wrapping ribbon, yarn or twine about 1 1/2 – 2 inches underneath the top knot. Pull the ribbon or yarn tightly so that you create a head shape, then finish off with a bow or knot.

Step 6

Cut the top of the fabric that is above the top knot in half to create the ears. Using scissors, cut down the center of the fabric almost to the rubber band.

Shape each side of the fabric to look like bunny ears by cutting a curve from the middle of the side towards the top.

Custom Sizes

If you would like to make a larger bunny, it is easy to do so. This project uses a 3:4 ratio to cut the fleece.

For instance, we used fabric cut to 6 inches X 8 inches. For a bigger bunny, you can use 9 X 12 inch pieces of fabric. An even larger stuffed bunny would use 12 X 16 inch fabric pieces.
